Is that the time?


Here I am back with another vintage card. I do love these cards and this would make a great male card. There's a lot of clock faces and watches here. The paper is Bo Bunny Timepiece. I have added some vintage seam binding, a die cut Tim Holtz clock face and a digi pocket watch from The Crafty Pad. I bought a small dictionary the other day as I had the idea of using pages on cards especially this style. Now I am very precious about books and cannot stand people even turning down a corner in a book never mind writing in them. Howvere as I bought this specifically for this purpose I quite happily tore a piece out relating to Time and like everything else inked it with Di Vintage Photo. A Craftwork cards sentiment finishes it off.

Superb vintage card. Like you, I shudder at the though of desecrating books, but as it was bought for this purpose I can just about handle it :o)

Love the card very vintage. I have this die cut but as yet haven't used it. I was going to use it for a card for my Dad but my hubby thought he might think I was trying to point out the clocks ticking and he was running out of time .... so I thought better of it. On reflection I think I was daft because your card doesn't evoke this at all
